Day 6 Gourmet 3D printing #blog12daysxmas

I came across an interesting article the other day...whilst not directly related to libraries (well perhaps not yet!), the fact that 3D printing has become so well known of late makes this device worthy of a mention.

The next stage of 3D printing is a 3D printer that can 'print' meals.  Co founder of Foodini, Lynette Kucsma, says that Foodini's main purpose is to "take on the difficult and/or time-consuming parts of food preparation that often discourage people from creating homemade food, whether it’s in a home kitchen or a restaurant".

The aim of the machine is to automate kitchen tasks whilst still allowing users to do a little personal customisation.  The concept is not new, but perhaps will become more refined and affordable in the near future?

Chocolate to go, anyone?
